After the relatively minimalist 2006 release Surprise with Brian Eno, Paul Simon went all bells-and-whistles for 2011's universally beloved So Beautiful Or So What, one of his most heartfelt and introspective collections to date. Swapping ideas with former accomplice Phil Ramone, he entertains us richly with a Hollywood-meets-West Africa disc that finds space for wife Edie Brickell, neat samples of the Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, "found" sound in the shape of an old sermon, and a well presented sleevenote courtesy of Elvis Costello. With touches of bluegrass recorded at Tony Bennett's New Jersey studio, there's a free and easy atmosphere at play here. Rolling Stone called it, "His best since Graceland" while Filter Magazine agreed hailing it as "...a new masterpiece from the Picasso of music."
